Ohio Update

Time seems to be flying so quickly. Since the last entry we have driven may miles and done many things. We spent a week in Tenn. at the Smokey Mountains which was really fun. We were with my parents and grandparents but were the only ones sleeping in a tent - 8-). We were only around 7 yard from the river so the sound of the river was very relaxing each evening as we went to sleep.

Camping in Pigeon Forge

Vacation never last long enough though so we are on the road again. We have visited two churches in Spartinburg, SC, two churches in West Virginia and after tomorrow night we will have visited three churches here in Ohio so far on this trip. Keepen the road hot ;-).

Tiffany, Boys and Mamaw in the Kitchen to make fresh Strawberry jam

Tiffany and the boys are doing fine. Tiff is having to slow down a good bit after the running and late nights we had this last week end. She is having to do some catch up on her rest. I believe she is really starting to feel pregnant. As for the boys they are having a ball getting to know their cousins. On our way north we met up with my cousin Jonathan and Rachel Linch and their children at a national park. We purchased a Subway sandwich and took it to the park for lunch so the 2nd cousins could play - boy did they have a ball even if it was only for 3 hours. Then on to Ohio where Kendrick and Kaleb joined up with their cousins Andrew and Katie Swartsfager for many more days of playing. Kendrick is growing up so quick. We almost let the time slip up on us but he will be starting school this year. His 5 years have just gone by so quickly.

Kendrick, Uncle Isaac and I went fishing. I have been promising Kendrick that I would take him fishing for some time. Tiffany's dad is a pastor but also works at a 4-H Camp where there is I nice pond and plenty of fish just waiting to be caught. It was a lot of fun!!

Sure hope that I get to see you all while you are in Ohio. We live north of Dayton about 50 miles and south of Lima about 30 miles. Please let me know if you are going to be in this area.

Hey guys, and glad that you have been able to get some vacation time and spend some time with your family. Try not to get too road-weary; we can sympathize with you a little bit.

Congratulations on the little one you're expecting.  We've corresponded with you a little and have so much in common it seems.  We'd love to be able to meet you.  We have 3 boys now (Beto-5, Pablo-3, and Jose-9mo).  Tiffany sure was brave sleeping in a tent during pregnancy...hope she had a good air mattress.  My back would have been killing me. :-) Crystal (and Philip) Gray

Oh no!! You were in Pigeon Forge and we didn't know it until we read your blog! We could have met up for lunch or something. We keep being so close and yet so far! * sigh * If you are going to be back in the greater Knoxville area, I hope I can find out before you get here.
